When it comes to luxury yacht charters in the Med, there is a great number of sailing destinations a potential client interested in yachting lifestyle can look at.  From various regions of Greek Islands, to magnificent Turkish Mediterranean coastline, across all of the facinating Adriatic to beautiful Italian regions and the spectacular Cote d’Azur in South of France, you can not make a mistake. One region is however above others, in particular in second part of August, when the who is who of this world descends on party Island of Ibiza and the most popular of all, Mallorca.

Of  course, apart from these busy, historic and charming islands, when cruising around with a motor yacht, you cannot miss out on at least a short visit to natural harbour of Mahon on island of Menorca, secluded island of Formentera or secretful private island of Tagomago which lies just off the South Eastern coastline of Ibiza.  Apart from a number of hidden anchorages around the whole of Ibiza’s coastline and a smaller number of secretful bays within the Formentera’s peaceful surroundings, this is where the celebrities, super rich and would be A-listers gather, following their lavish partying and decadent celebration of their success within the Gulf of Stropez and Monaco’s established venues.

When it comes to partying, the newly refurbished PACHA disco club is most likely going to draw in crowds once again this year. The historic venue, now 45 years old, has gone a long way since its inception in 1973 when hippies and a few locals frequented around its unique Ibicenco farmhouse. With superstar DJ’s such as Hot Since 82 or Sven Vaeth with his legendary party Cocoon, who will perform throughout the summer, the place to party while enjoying luxury yacht charter in the Balearics is certainly going to be on the newly remodelled  and expanded dancefloor.  Alternatively, consider booking the 120ft Palmer Johnson mega yacht ASCARI which has its own disco lights and set up for partying on board.  That could save you painfull walks back to your mooring as well as annoying paparazzi’s spotting you and making those photos that break your heart or make you look like a looser that you have never been.

Apart from sailing and partying, you are most certainly going to like to do some shopping too. A couple of new boutiques are worth seeing on island of Ibiza, within the historic walls of Dalt Villa.  Here is where most of your celebrity shopping should be conducted as the style focused shopping district of Ibiza is perfect for unique garments and pieces of clothing that are not found in many other places.  And if you will be wanting to stay in Ibiza in a local hotel or have guests who are likely to join you before the charter, consider puting them up in the Cuban style Cubanito hotel which opened only recently. Alternatively, adult only, pink themed Paradiso Art Hotel should attract you as well.

Finally, after partying and all the swimming, snorkelling and jet skiing or even scuba diving, you may also be in need of total relaxation or meditation. Some yachts such as Lady Dee may have a masseuse on board or you can have your own personal trainer called upon.  Gym on board is nothing unusual on bigger 40m+ superyachts so that a training session with free weights and reisstance bands can do wonders to your well being.  To add a bit of spice to your health, a good broker such as SuperSailYachts agents can also arrange a professional or a team from local meditation company to come and visit you on board.  Suzee Wood created a HIIT training session with guided meditation and chakra balancing that could assist you in finding the best of your own easier. Others such as jogabeats.com also provide an option to enhance your well being by visiting their music led sunrise yoga flow session while anchoring at secluded Es Canar beach on Ibiza.

And if that’s not all you are looking for, than let us organise a surprise superyacht tender ride across to San Antonio where a fabulous snacks and lunch is served for years at Rita’s Cantina which is simply the best small restaurant in the whole world, where the niece of the former owner is always serving fast, yet healthy food with a smile.
